    I think some of them pay attention to the news and realize how dangerous rideshare can be for drivers.

    omg. it's just a friendly expression. I try and avoid saying "safe travels" to people but do on occasion because I've always said it to family and friends.

    It means you are not getting a tip, but the pax is acknowledging you. Probably comes often with the banker handshake.

    I used to work in a job where my co workers and I spent about 25% of our time on the road.

    It was pretty normal to wish each other "safe travels" when our meetings were breaking up. I considered it to be a nice thing to do. It wasn't prescriptive any more than wishing someone a happy birthday.

  9. That usually means they noticed the large metal safe in your back seat and they're reminding your that you're "driving a safe." The modern vernacular just sounds like they're "drive safe." Y'all know how slang can be. You can leave the safe at home or place it in your trunk and the problem will be solved in a jiffy. That means "resolved with a jar of Jif peanut butter."

    Or so I've been told.

    I read it on a forum once.

    What does it mean when complete strangers say "have a nice day"? Same crap. Who cares, means nothing.

    I think they mean to say "be safe" but are just drunk. That or they've watched "The Sopranos" or driven the NJ Turnpike one too many times...

    It means "Everything's fine. Thanks, have a nice day. Goodbye."

    Hope it's better than me careening swiftly towards a red light without stopping because I had a brief moment of dead air in my head, then immediately realize what I am doing and punch the brakes to launch a passenger's White Castle soda onto my floor.

    I hope the passengers were cool with it, but at least they kindly suggested a nearby carwash where I could clean the floor mats and such.

    EDIT:
    Trust me, I try not to make mistakes, but inevitably something stupid will happen.

    think some people just are trying to be polite and are not real good at conversation. I try not to look for hidden meaning in anything people say. Life is too short.

  18. Whenever I hear that in Chicago, I just assume they are hoping I won't become the next violent crime statistic.
